State Fair Meadowlands Announces 2017 FREE Entertainment Lineup

There’s free entertainment, fireworks, and fun to be had at the State Fair Meadowlands this year kicking off on June 22nd. Join us in East Rutherford, NJ for free shows including Master Hypnotist Steve Bayner, Artie Miller’s Art of Magic show, and everyone’s favorite All-American Thrill Show.

East Rutherford, NJ – May 29, 2017 – New Jersey’s Biggest Event is back. State Fair Meadowlands, the largest fair in the New York metro area, returns this summer with a star studded lineup of free entertainment for the whole family to enjoy.

Returning in 2017 is legendary radio personality Bruce Morrow and his spectacular Cousin Brucie’s Pallisades Park Reunion V. On Saturday, June 24 at 7:00 PM, fairgoers can rock out to a top-notch rock and roll concert featuring Felix Cavaliere, Billy J.  Kramer, 1910 Fruitgum Company, The Capris and The Quotations.

Cousin Brucie’s Pallisades Park Reunion V is FREE with entry ticket to the fair, which is $11 for adults and $9 for children 12 and younger. Children under 34 inches tall are admitted for free. The special concert, presented by SiriusXM, is live on the American Stage and will include performances broadcast live on SiriusXM’s ’60’s channel.

More live concerts to be announced in the coming weeks.

One of the highlights from last year, The All-American Thrill Show, is back this summer. Gymnastic acrobats and aerialists will dazzle and delight audiences. Watch them perform dizzying feats on the high wire and 90-foot sway pole. And, if you need even further excitement, watch the elegant and powerful performers in The Amazing High Dive Show shock and amaze as they soar from an 85-foot platform into a pool of just 10 feet. Both acts will perform twice per day, for double the fun.

There is something at State Fair Meadowlands for everyone from the young to the young at heart. Kids will love the stylings of Master Hypnotist Steve Bayner, a phenomenal and hilarious hypnotist whose shows are famous for being as amazing as they are funny. Or take in a stunning magic show from one of the best performers around. You won’t believe your eyes when you check out the great Artie Miller as he strolls through the fair with his Art of Magic Show.

Everyone loves animals and two of the most popular furry and friendly attractions will be here at State Fair Meadowlands for your enjoyment. Throw your arms up in the air and cheer for the always hysterical Racing Pigs, as they rip up their real piggy racetrack. You will have plenty of chances to see these pot-bellied speedsters, as they tirelessly perform five races per day!

Commerford’s Petting Zoo & Live Animal Rides let kids get up close and personal with animals of the world and offer a perfect spot for ridiculous and hilarious selfies. Open to the public throughout the fair, kids and adults alike can meet and greet their favorite animals and even go for a ride for an extra fee. And what’s a fair without spectacular fireworks shows? State Fair Meadowlands is proud to announce a pair of stunning fireworks performances centered around Independence Day. Monday, July 3 and Tuesday, July 4 will feature the best fireworks display in the metro area, lighting up the sky above the State Fair Meadowlands Fairgrounds.
